MASON CITY - A North Iowa woman has been arrested for meth after deputies checked out a "suspicious vehicle" in rural Cerro Gordo County.
Darlene Gladys Barr, 36, of Alexander, is charged with possession of a controlled substance, methamphetamine--first offense.
About 2:16 a.m. Feb. 26, court documents said Barr was identified by a Cerro Gordo County deputy as the driver of a suspicious vehicle on private property in the 14000 block of 230th Avenue, southeast of Mason City.
The deputy began to investigate the suspicious activity and gained consent to search the vehicle, according to the criminal complaint.
Upon search, the deputy allegedly found a meth pipe and hypodermic needle.
“After questioning, Miss Barr pointed out some meth in a baggie that she had placed behind the driver's seat where she was located,” the criminal complaint said.
Barr posted $1,000 bond Feb. 26 and promised to appear in Cerro Gordo County District Court Wednesday.
